Data & Reporting

Hospital Profiles and Commentaries

Each year, the Minnesota Hospital Association sends each individual hospital a Hospital Profile report and a Commentary Report free of charge. Hospitals have the option to purchase an Industry Profile Book.

Hospital Commentary Report

The Commentary Report is meant for use as an analysis tool showing your hospital’s data, percentage variances from the previous year and three comparative group averages. The information used in the Commentary Report is based on your hospital’s data submitted to MHA in conjunction with the Health Care Cost Information System on the Hospital Annual Report.

Customized Commentaries may be ordered incorporating your preferred comparison groupings.

Hospital Profile

The Hospital Profile provides the past four years of major financial and utilization information and the percentage change for the accounts during that time period for your hospital. For more in-depth information, an Industry Profile Book is available for purchase, showing the various aggregated information for the past four years. The book contains reports aggregated by statewide, metro vs. non-metro, critical access hospital, bed size, rural vs. urban, and other various grouping.
